Our tour guide was amazing. I have no idea how he was able to spot some of the animals hiding in the thick canopy, without him we would have seen very little wildlife. We also knew there was a chance we might not see elephants but our guide was determined to try and find them for us (coordinating with other tour guides and park officials to see if there were any sightings) and at the very end of our trip we finally got to see them! Overall we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Our family enjoyed the trip very much. The ranger, Kan is very caring and sensitive. She took great care of my kids and mum. She is also very sensitive to the surroundings and always ready to search for wild animals without compromising our safety!

We are Expats in Bangkok. It was the best what could happen to us going to Khao Yai National Park. We enjoyed our trip and Safari very much. And Tata and his Cousin Jay are outstanding guides. We have seen so much wildlife and everything was well explained. Tatas English language skills are outstanding (he also speaks some German). He was extremly Patience with us and our two Girls (9 and 13 years old). We highly recommend them and a trip to Khao Yai National Park.

Our tour guide was WONDERFUL. He was knowledgeable and accommodating! He kept it interesting and went out of his way to show us everything he could! It was an amazing experience! We enjoyed it soooo much! I could have gone back again and again with our guide - I was sad we only booked two days!

The trip went smoothly, the guide Lek was early, and managed to point out several animals for us which we would have missed. The ride was smooth-sailing as well,excellent driving skills. We finished the treks earlier than expected and the guide brought us to the top of the mountain and an elephant home.

Our guide Ton arranged our 1.5 day tour in Khao Yai National Park. She arranged a transfer from our hotel in Bangkok, and the vehicle and the driver were excellent on both trips to and from Bangkok, would highly recommend. We really appreciated being looked after, the water to drink on board and the quality of the vehicles and driver.

Ton collected us the first evening and took us swimming at a local water hole with clean clear water. We had a great evening seeing bats, a budha cave and a couple of snakes.

The next day we spent the day on the back of a truck for better viewing in the park. It was casual and fun. What Ton has, that every wildlife guide needs is the ability to see wildlife - this is a skill and we got to benefit from it. We saw an elephant from a distance, we saw a crocodile, monkeys, and had a great day rushing around in the grass looking for the elephant. We had a local lunch, which I enjoyed - as this seemed a little more real than some of the other tourist spots for lunch.

I would like to say thank you to Ton and her drivers - we thoroughly enjoyed the days with her and would recommend her without hesitation.

Tata was one of the best guide we could ever asked for! We were really impressed with his service provided, to his extensive knowledge of the park and wildlife, as well as his photography skills where he captured many beautiful and national geographic like shots for us! Throughout the day, Tata really did his best in listening for and pointing out wildlife, while also introducing and explaining the fauna in the park. However, we understand that the park may be overcrowded on a Saturday, hence we did not see as much wildlife as expected. Nonetheless, We look forward in joining Thai National Park tours again! :)

Dear Clara,

The visit to Kao Yai was very good, filled with emotions. I came to see wild elefants and that I got, 15 of them, 5 cubs. Although the interaction from other humans was at times devastating it was well worth the trip.

Our Guide "Beer" was very knowledgeable and had a keen eye, together with the driver "Nat" they spotted several animals for us. Top grade on this.

P.S. Beer was supposed to send me some photos of the elefant encounter. If possible, I would greatly appreciate it. (r****en.se) Kap kun kap!

Tour operator's response

Glad to hear our guide did his best to show you the wildlife. Even lucky to see elephants!

I will ask Beer to sent some pics. I guess it is our fault he has not sent any yet, as he has been in the jungle pretty much every day after your trip ;-)
